Title: Comedy in Performance
Course Section Number: THE-103-01
Department: Theater
Description: Only for Freshmen, Sophmore, Junior. In this course, we will explore the technical and improvisational world of theatrical comedy. We will examine comedy from two?different perspectives: the precision of great comedic scripts and the free-wheeling energy of improvisation. With scripted work, we will dissect the language and phrase of each scene as if it were a piece of music, and then put it on its feet to see how it flies. We will also explore improvisation, breaking down all the components of improv that allow for fun and creation, with NO pressure to "be funny." If you have never done improv, GREAT! It's nothing to fear. This class is appropriate for ALL levels of interest and experience: from "This seems like a somewhat fun way to fulfill the Literature/Fine Arts Distribution Requirement at Wabash College" to "I want to do this for my career."
